In 2019 TCLF sponsors can reach their target audiences through the following programs and events (click on each program or event for a printable benefits summary):

What’s Out There® Weekends: Hosted in different cities every year, What’s Out There® Weekends bring to light the unique landscape legacy and local character of each city as reflected by its publicly accessible parks, gardens, plazas, cemeteries, memorials, and neighborhoods. Engaging large and diverse audiences (typically 1,000+), this program offers two days of free, expert-led tours of more than two dozen sites that demonstrate the region’s diverse landscape legacy, encouraging participants to discover the little-known design history of places they may pass every day.

Commensurate with sponsorship level, you have the opportunity to include your logo on the event web-page, in the printed guidebook, in the online city guide, and more.

Second Wave of Modernism IV conference: The fourth of the widely acclaimed and influential Second Wave of Modernism conferences will be held in Dallas, Texas, October 3-5, 2019. International leaders in landscape architecture, public officials, and other stakeholders will convene for a one-day, in-depth examination of Modernist principles/practices in current landscape architectural design and project work in Dallas and beyond. The Friday conference will be preceded by an evening reception and dinner for invited guests and speakers. The day after the conference, conference attendees will attend expert-led tours of new projects examined during the conference (mostly in planning and initial construction phases) and other iconic projects in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

Commensurate with sponsorship level, you can use your complimentary registration to interact with landscape architects and allied practitioners, have your logo on the event web-page, have your name on the conference handouts, include company/firm collateral in conference folders distributed to attendees, and more.

Garden Dialogues: Launched in 2012, Garden Dialogues brings together garden owners and landscape architects/designers to reveal the creative process, the give and take, and the collaboration that yields a great garden. This unique program offers small groups the opportunity to experience some of today’s most beautiful gardens created by some of the most accomplished landscape architects and designers currently in practice. Taking place across the country from March through October, the tours cater to audiences that are limited to 20-30 people, offering them the chance to be part of the conversation among owner, designer, and, if appropriate, other significant contributors to the garden’s design (e.g., architect, master gardener, historian).

Commensurate with sponsorship level, you have the opportunity to include your logo on the event web-page, have your logo printed on each program distributed to event attendees, receive complimentary registrations to socialize with attendees, and more.

Pioneers of American Landscape Design® Oral History Project: Pioneers oral histories are an ever-growing, award-winning series of videotaped first-person interviews with significant practitioners. The series format examines each designer’s personal and professional history, their overall design philosophy, and how that approach was carried out in their most emblematic projects. The richly edited video segments include never-before-seen archival footage, new photography, and on‐location videography.

This year's oral histories include:

  • From the Office of Dan Kiley Oral History, Peter Ker Walker
  • Robert Royston, FASLA.

Commensurate with sponsorship level, benefits include recognition on project’s web page, recognition on project launch e-blast and press release, and more.

Landslide® 2019: Every year TCLF creates an annual thematic Landslide® report about threatened and at-risk cultural landscapes and landscape features. The goal is to draw immediate and lasting attention to these threatened and unique sites by making them visible, revealing their value, and promoting public engagement in the form of advocacy and stewardship. Each online report features online photography, narrative histories about the sites and theme being explored, and ways for the public to learn more and get involved. In 2019 the annual Landslide report will highlight the impact of climate change on our shared landscape legacy, which is already suffering the effects of increasing fires, rising waters, altered ecologies, and accelerated extinctions.

Commensurate with sponsorship level, benefits include recognition on event web-page, recognition on theme announcement e-blast, and more.

Traveling Photographic Exhibitions: TCLF is fielding three photographic exhibitions that will appear in venues across the nation. Each exhibition presents newly commissioned photography, as well as narratives about the themes being explored and the sites featured.

This year's traveling exhibitions are: 

  • The Landscape Architecture of Lawrence Halprin
  • The New American Garden: The Landscape Architecture of Oehme, van Sweden
  • The Landscape Architecture Legacy of Dan Kiley 

Commensurate with sponsorship level, benefits include recognition on event web-page, recognition on event e-blasts, recognition on signage at the exhibition, and more.
